People braved the perhaps appropriately wet weather to celebrate the 200th “birthday” of Britain’s longest single canal waterway.

They gathered at Weavers’ Triangle yesterday (Tuesday) teatime to welcome the arrival of the Kennet canal barge as part of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal bicentenary celebrations.

The bells of St Peter’s Church pealed out as the Kennet and a flotilla of other craft made their way to Burnley Wharf where the boats were met by the Mayor of Burnley, Councillor Jeff Sumner, and other guests.

Members of staff at Burnley Town Hall have been treated to a very special visit by a fluffy yellow guest in support of Children in Need.

The BBC’s very own Pudsey Bear took time out of his packed fund-raising schedule and dropped by the town hall on Monday, 17th October.

The famous bear had a busy day strolling around Burnley town centre with his collection bucket raising funds for this year’s appeal.

Visits to the town hall and local businesses were organised by the town’s Boots store.
